    Hi folks!

    I”ve started holidays today, going in the North of Spain by motorhome with family.
    Relax (but with my 4 girls :oops:), some bbq, reading a Robin Cook book, swimming pool, etc. The only issue: no guitar here.

    I attached some pictures, the one with the blue sky, if you zoom, you”ll see a eagle flying.

    We have a T5.1. Had it about 4 years now, very low mileage example. It’s been great over the summers, but when we took it to France in 2018 it REALLY shone. The weather was baking!

    mind you, these photos are from last weekend in Shrewsbury :cool:

    I've done some traveling in a 31' motor home. It's an interesting experience to wake up in your same familiar bed every morning and find yourself in various different places when you look out the window.

    I would love to have one, maybe even live in one.
    My wallet disagrees with me.

    I have a Kodiak Scamper hybrid set up at the back of my property by the creek. My kids love to come over and stay. I don't take it anywhere, I'd have to put some money into it to make it roadworthy. It was given to me by an extended family member who wanted it gone, and I said I'll take it, I have just the place for it. I have power to it, and my extra bathroom and water is close enough for them to get to. It's a nice little place to go if I feel like sleeping out with the bears.

    The carpet is a civilized touch...

    My mother was born into a North Dakota Soddie...
    She thought bare feet were uncivilized...
    The carpet addresses that...:D

    I've been considering getting a small trailer since I now have a vehicle capable of pulling one. The only problem is finding one that has the amenity level that my wife considers acceptable within the price and towing weight limits I have. I kind of like the R Pod 171 but she doesn't like the idea of a wet bath.
